Product Description

Aalto Bowl

The word aalto is Finnish for "wave," and in the 1930s Aalto captured the eternal wave in his now famous free-form crystal vases and tray. Long included in the MoMA design collection, these now-famous undulating pieces are masterpieces of free-form modern design. Each lead-free crystal piece is mouth-blown into a mold and hand-polished. These small bowls can be used for decoration, serving, or as a candy dish or jewelry holder. Made by Iittala. Hand wash only.

About the Designer

Alvar Aalto

Finland's foremost architect-designer of the twentieth century, Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) continues to have a profound influence internationally and was the subject of a 1998 exhibition at MoMA. He was involved with projects ranging from town planning and architecture to the design of furniture, lighting, textiles, and glassware. Aalto advocated the use of natural materials and organic forms, as evidenced in his famous series of free-form vases and bentwood furniture designs. In his major architectural projects, his furniture designs played an important role in creating harmonious environments.
